He is slated to make $24 million next season for this.  He's great at times but it's clear this is the elephant in the room with this team moving forward.  We're paying him more than more than two-thirds of the starting 2s in the league.

It has all the markings of a guy that got his mega payday and relaxed, quit working, and wants to care, but just doesn't.  He's a good guy, but he just doesn't seem to be invested anymore and has been horrible for awhile now.  In the past, we knew we could count on him to hit one of those midranges or a contested quick pull up 3 rolling off of a screen, but he doesnt so that anymore.  Everytime i watch our games now (which is becoming less and less often), he is bricking and turning the ball over non-stop.  Good luck moving that contract.  He was considered an intangibles guy that could do all of the little things and wad really god at everything...  now, he's just a walking minus who isn't really good at anything and doesnt seem to have a good feel for what's going on around him.  He looks bad.

He was a role player his whole career and we got fooled into treating him like a star.. And while we are wasting our time justifying that contract a younger better player sits on the bench..

His contract, softness, and inconsistencies are in part holding this team back.  For real.   5 year, 120 million all guaranteed.  

I hate to place so much blame on one guy because we have a coaching issue, GM issue, and a roster full of role players, but it's true.

Between our 2 and 3, with Batum playing poorly, we have MKG who can't hit from 3 (or inside lol) and Lamb (solid).  We shipped Monk to the G-League and are playing Treveon f*cking Graham.  Don't forget, our second PG can't shoot either. 

The situation at 1, 2, and 3 has to be the worst in the league even with Kemba and Lamb.  

I distinctly remember Blazers' fans were very much in the same boat with Batum.  Coming into the league he was so highly touted with his measurables and 2-3 mold, he would show up sometimes and in great flashes.  He drew insane comparisons I won't even mention.  They however realized he was more of a role player and McCollum rose above him and found us wanting to bite.  We thought he may break through, it didn't happen. 

He's a decent 6th man when he plays well but is our starting 2, hogging cap, and un-tradable.  

He was 4-14 and 1-7 from 3 last night.  Finding offense needs to be a priority and right now.

I'm starting to not become a fan of the French players. Diaw irked me after he forced his way out of Charlotte and watching Batum go through the motions is so damn irritating.

Agreed.

The only way to move him will be a package with someone like Frank and we'd have to take on another teams bad contract, I.E. Deng, Delledova, George Hill, Parsons, etc.  

So, what overpaid vet would we be ok with? haha
